These annual fact sheets present data on the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income programs. Data are given for the number of people receiving benefits and the amount of total monthly payments made to persons in the United States, in each state, and in each congressional district within the state.
This annual publication focuses on the Social Security beneficiary population at the ZIP Code level. It presents basic program data on the number and type of beneficiaries and the amount of benefits paid in each state, Social Security Administration field office, and ZIP Code. It also shows the number of beneficiaries aged 65 or older.
This annual publication provides data on the Social Security population at the local level. It presents basic program data by type of benefit (retirement, survivors, and disability) and category of beneficiary (retired and disabled workers, wives and husbands, widows and widowers, and children).
These monthly tables provide statistics for benefits in current-payment status and benefits awarded under the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and Disability Insurance (OASDI) programs.
Information needed to administer the OASDI program resides on SSA's Master Beneficiary Record (MBR) file, which in December 2001 contained records for approximately 46 million individuals who were entitled to receive an OASDI benefit for that month. The OASDI Public-Use Microdata File contains an extract of data fields from the MBR and consists of a 1 percent random, representative sample of persons entitled to receive an OASDI benefit payment for December 2001. This file contains approximately 460,000 records with 16 data fields on each record.
The Supplement includes more than 200 statistical tables that provide comprehensive data on Social Security and Supplemental Security Income. The data cover program details such as beneficiary counts, amounts of benefits, and the status of the trust funds. Most of the data are derived from SSA's administrative records. Narrative sections describe the programs' legislative history and program rules.
